Sustainable Biofuels is one of six sub-programmes of the Top-level Research Initiative – the largest joint Nordic research and innovation programme to date. With 30 million NOK in financing over five years, the Sustainable Biofuels sub-programme aims to promote innovative and sustainable forms of biofuels.

Associated projects

Innovations in bioethanol production technologies

This research project seeks to advance innovations in bioethanol production technologies. By developing more efficient production processes, bioethanol can contribute to securing the future energy supply in the Nordic region

Testing second generation biofuels

This project aims to use experimental and simulation work to advance knowledge on specific frontiers related high performing bio-based transport fuels

Improving the feasibility of second generation biofuels

This project aims to improve the production processes for 2nd generation biofuels. Using ‘high gravity’ techniques which have higher raw material concentrations, the project will improve the economic feasibility of this promising technology

Making liquid fuels from forest wastes

This project aims to increase the profitability of pulp and paper industry by using forestry by-products for producing high-quality renewable fuels

Nordic Wind Integration Research Network

Development of wind power and electricity production from renewable sources continues its fast growth in both Europe and in the Nordic countries. This network will strive to strengthen the collaboration between the Nordic organisations in order to utilise mutual research within wind power

Wind power operation and maintenance network

This network aims to create a Nordic network for operation and maintenance issues regarding wind power plants

Integration of wind energy into power grids

This project aims to address key enablers and risk elements for the integration of large amounts of wind energy into the Nordic power grid. Through the facilitation of networks on the integration of wind energy into onshore and offshore grids, the aim is to achieve a better understanding of challenges and needs in this area

Determining reserve production capacities in wind power systems

In order to improve the integration of wind farms into modern power systems, a certain amount of reserve production capacity is required. This research project seeks to determine the optimal amount of extra capacity in the wind power system while taking into account system imbalances and forecasting errors

DC grids for integration of large scale wind power

To make the use of wind power in the Nordic countries more flexible grids must to a higher extent be interconnected. This research project seeks to study the most promising technical solutions in this area for future large-scale offshore grids. Read more about the project and download the final report

Improved forecast of wind, waves and icing

This research project seeks to address some of the barriers to large-scale integration of wind energy in the Nordic countries. Through improved forecasts and acquiring an overview of icing conditions, wind farms will have a better chance at contributing to a higher share of renewable energy in the Nordic countries
